Check this out! In 1999, Danelectro reissued many of their historically awesome models from the 50s and 60s. These U2 models painted in Copper Burst were a hot seller and are really hard to find these days.
This is a pre-production sample! The serial dates to 1998, prior to these being released. We're a Danelectro dealer, and a few weeks ago we reached out to our friends at Dano and told them to look around the office and find us some cool stuff to sell. They hit us back with a handful of super early production samples that had been hanging out at the corporate office for over 20 years. This is one of them! It is being sold as Brand New, from an authorized Danelectro dealer. New Old Stock!
There's a nice collection of dings and scratches...it has reliced nicely! We left it as we acquired it...with the strings coiled up on the headstock. It plays and sounds great!
